      I originally downloaded it from this website and I was having the same issue as you, no .mbr file. When you go to the extensions tab in premier pro it will give you the option to download the package. Not sure why I had to do it again/ why it was different, but this download will give you a zip with the .mbr file in it. Hope this helps!

    I updated the new version in the adobe creative cloud and restarted PrPro and also I downloaded the file and unzipped it. I can see the new version in Prpro but it says I need to drag a .MBR file? I cannot find such file in the downloaded file and can’t remember this from the old version… very confusing unfortunatley.

    Been using Motion bro since the first release. This time I did everything the same way to install, but it just doesn’t add to the extensions (when I check the tab – no “MotionBro 4.0” there. I tried the ZXP installer – nothing. Tried manual installation – still nothing. What could be the reason?
